Defense Minister Rajnath Singh once again called on the three Army Chiefs (Army, Navy and Air Force) and Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) General Bipin after tensions erupted following violent clashes along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and Chinese troops. Had a meeting with Rawat. He also spoke on the current situation. Also talked to Jaishankar.
After the death of 20 soldiers in the Galvan region, Indian strategists are engaged in a detailed review of the situation and the future course of action. The round of meetings which began on Tuesday morning has lasted till late night in Raisina Hills. On Wednesday too, the process of consultation between the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of External Affairs has started.
China’s new aggressive attitude to Indian strategists is not only a matter of concern that it has attacked ambush, but has declared the entire Galvan region as part of China. This announcement was made not by the Foreign Ministry of China but by the Chinese People’s Army. This clearly means that he is claiming that part of the Line of Actual Control, which has been under India’s control till now. It is being discussed between the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Defense, there is an emphasis in finding its cut.
